Did Israel’s support for Azerbaijan against Artsakh have anything to do with its ambitions to attack Iran?
Israel’s assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was meant to destabilise the region and provoke war in the final days of Trump’s “ill-fated” presidency, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said during a press conference in Tehran.
Rouhani also made his position clear on the possibility of the US rejoining the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal, which was scrapped by President Trump. Iran’s leader said the agreement was not “open to renegotiation” and that President-elect Biden was “well aware of” the fact. Rouhani added that the only option left for Washington is to rejoin without demanding any changes linked to missiles or regional policy.
